Can I convert Ranger front to 5x5.5 bolt pattern
I have done some reading and haven't found the solution for my problem, hoping you guys can be of assistance, here is my delima:
1988 Ford ranger lonbox, building as a drag truck, installed ford 9" from older bronco (1974 bronco I think) with 5x5.5 bolt pattern, have a full set of Explorer rims and a set of weld race rims with same bolt pattern, rear end was custom narrowed for rims I have, don't want two different bolt patterns front and rear so I want to convert front hubs to accept 5x5.5 wheels without using spacers, CAN IT BE DONE AND IF SO HOW?
I am not really interested in changing rear to 4.5 because I already have my custom length axles installed and they are 5.5. Also as stated I already have two sets of rims with 5.5 pattern on them.
Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance.
